Sheets (4-1) had his longest outing since joining Atlanta’s rotation on July 15 after missing all of last season due to Tommy John surgery on his right elbow. He allowed one run on seven hits while walking one and striking out none.

Freddie Freeman drove in two runs, Brian McCann went 2-for-3 with an RBI and Dan Uggla had a pair of hits for the Braves, who have won 11 of 13 overall.

John Mayberry Jr. homered for the Phillies, who have lost seven straight to Atlanta.

Vance Worley (6-7) had his shortest outing of the season, lasting just 3 2-3 innings and giving up four runs on six hits with three walks and two strikeouts.

The Phillies’ crowd of 41,665 halted the club’s consecutive sellout streak at 257 games, which is the third-longest in MLB history according to the club. The streak started on July 7, 2009.
